At Durham and Bates we understand the value of developing relationships between insurance carriers and clients.  In our role as liaison, we encourage direct contact between clients and underwriters and facilitate those meetings whenever possible.  We know that our client’s story is sometimes best told in their own words. The positive intangibles from this “partnership” approach often result in long term relationships and improved coverage terms and pricing.

The Durham and Bates’ Security Committee requires that all carriers we place business with maintain a minimum AM Best Rating of A-VI or higher; ratings are reviewed regularly.
